AIRDAC® II CNE CABLE

Cable Description

Circular stranded hard-drawn copper phase conductor, XLPE insulated with concentrically arranged bare earth conductors. Polyethylene sheathed 600/1000V house service connection cable. Nylon ripcord laid under sheath. Manufactured to SANS 1507-6.

  • Small overall diameter - concentric construction.
  • Lower mass - due to smaller diameter - no steel wire armour.
  • Increased safety - reliable earthing.
  • Improved reliability - UV stable sheath and core insulation.
  • Tamper and vandal proof - unauthorised access to phase conductor inhibited by concentric layer.
  • Easy strip with nylon ripcord.

    AIRDAC® SNE CABLE

    Cable Description

    Circular stranded hard drawn copper phase conductor, XLPE insulated with concentrically arranged identified neutral and bare earth conductors. Polyethylene sheathed 600/1000V service connection cable. Nylon ripcord laid under sheath. Manufactured to SANS 1507- 6.

  • Small overall diameter - concentric construction (SNE - Seperate Neutral Earth).
  • Lower mass - due to smaller diameter - no steel wire armour.
  • Increased safety - reliable earthing.
  • Improved reliability - UV stable sheath and core insulation and water blocked.
  • Tamper and vandal proof - unauthorised access to phase conductor inhibited by concentric layer.
  • Easy strip with nylon ripcord.

    OVERHEAD ALUMINIUM CONDUCTORS

    ACSR ALUMINIUM CONDUCTOR STEEL REINFORCED
    Overview

    Aluminium conductors have achieved wide acceptance all over the world for use in overhead transmission and distribution lines. Generally a steel core is used with the aluminium to give the conductor mechanical strength.This arrangement is termed Aluminium Conductor Steel Reinforced or ACSR. Conductors comprised entirely of aluminium are known as All Aluminium Conductors or AAC.These conductors are extensively used for busbars in outdoor substations where spans are short. All Aluminium Alloy Conductors or AAC consist of an alloying of aluminium to give a tensile strength in excess of that of AAC allowing longer spans.These conductors are recommended for coastal areas where severe corrosion is a problem.

    Hard drawn aluminium in H9 temper is used in both ACSR and AAC. High strain steel wire is used in ACSR and this is sometimes protected from corrosion by an application of grease. Such measures are particularly adopted when the conductor is intended for use in aggressive environments as encountered in coastal regions.
